Lim Guan Eng should file legal suits against those involved in smearing his name over allegations that his son had molested a 16-year-old girl.
He should not stop short of merely condemning those he alleged had been part of a conspiracy to finish him off politically.
As the Chief Minister of Penang, Guan Eng should not be contended with just expressing his anger over the allegations via a press conference.
This is a serious matter and he should clear his name in line with what he had been advocating – Competency, Accountability and Transparency (CAT) .
Amidst the denials and brouhaha, the story in the blogger’s sphere is that a reputable businessman had negotiated with the girl’s family and came to a RM200,000 settlement.
Are we talking about accessary to a cover-up here?
Coincidentally the well connected businessman who is also from the Penang Chinese Chamber of Commerce had recently contributed RM2 mil to the SMK Heng Ee building fund.
The same co-ed school is where Guan Eng’s son was alleged to have a molested the girl.
Well, sometimes things happen co-incidentally and there are hidden reasons????. Perhaps we should connect the dotted lines to get a clearer picture.
The school headmaster Goh Boon Poh had however denied accepting any bribe to cover up the case. Well I always believe there is always a price for everything.
Bloggers have also reported that Guan Eng’s son had allegedly said : “Apa you boleh buat, I anak CM”, after the girl was said to have reported the matter to the school’s disciplinary teacher.
With all those allegations mounting, Guan Eng should take the bloggers to court and trashed it out in the open so that he can redeem his dignity.
But what is surprising is that Guan Eng’s wife Betty Chew when asked to comment had said : “Please ask the CM about it.”
Why ask the CM. Just deny that such a thing had occurred if there is no truth in those allegations. It is not a policy matter that should only be referred to the CM.
It is also surprising that Guan Eng had probably misused his powers to get a transfer out of SMK Heng Ee for his son, just because he had refused to crop his hair to a crew-cut style as required by the school.
Is that not pampering and also an abuse of power when he got his son transferred to Saint Xavier’s Institution.
Guan Eng’s explanation at the press conference leaves more questions than providing answers to the allegations.
Why all of a sudden his son wanted to keep his hair long after been in that school for several years. The timing of him wanting a transfer to Saint Xaviers Institution to spare his crown creates much doubt.
Let us have the answers, not lies please.
